Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen asked area boaters to operate watercraft at slow

no-wake speeds whenever possible on area lakes with high water levels.

According to Larsen, high water levels continue to be an issue on Shamineau Lake and Crookneck Lake in northwestern Morrison County.

Boaters should be aware causing excessive wakes can create significant erosion to shorelines as well as damage to docks and other structures along the shorelines. The sheriff's office water patrol, along with local conservation officers, will ask boaters throughout the summer to operate at no-wake speeds anytime they are within 300 feet of a shoreline. There are "No Wake Zone" signs at the Shamineau Lake and Crookneck Lake public accesses.

"We are asking boaters to use extra caution in adhering to this advisory until lake water levels return to normal," Larsen stated in a news release.
